Editorial Reviews

From KIDS FIRST!: Perhaps this film should have been called “God’s Grace.” Either way, the story is powerful and inspirational. It’s based on the true account of a gunman who entered an Amish schoolhouse and killed some of the girls. The man’s wife struggles to come to terms with the enormity of what her husband had done, and because of their belief in God’s forgiveness of them, the Amish community offers a hand of forgiveness to the wife. Except for one mother. Ida, a fictional character, struggled to come to terms with that her own community preached. Viewers who watch this film should settle in to watch the entire movie, which isn’t hard to do since the pacing keeps the viewer glued to the screen. The first half of the film seems almost black and white with the Amish as good guys and the “Others” as evil influences. As the film moves on, however, both sides begin to grey so everyone just becomes human, with good and bad qualities. This in no way detracts from the strong message of forgiveness. The idea of forgiveness is shown to be very difficult and very real, but a viewer understands the messages behind forgiveness. When you don’t forgive, you are disobeying God’s command and authority. Even if you don’t believe in God, the hatred that comes from a lack of forgiveness will eat at you, making you feel even worse. The acting is very real, and those who live in Amish communities will recognize the lifestyle, aside from the fact that all the Amish women in the film are young and beautiful, and there are no scenes with little babies, even though the Amish tend to have many children. Child Juror Comments: The message of forgiveness in this movie was really good. I’m not sure that my friends would like it because it’s so religious. My Christian friends would like it. They aren’t like the Amish people in my area. The ones here don’t talk. The acting and crying seemed real. If my brother got shot, I don’t think I would act like the Amish. Ages 14-18

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Message for us all July 1, 2010
This movie is great for everyone to see! Knowing that it is based on true events makes it so real to us.
The powerful message of forgiveness is something for us all; how we should forgive each other when
offended in any way! It is a command from God himself & right here proved how the Amish put God first
in their life even when someone murders their little children!! Wow...only with the help of God could
you actually forgive someone like that. Take time & watch this if you haven't already.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Power & Difficulties of Forgiveness October 13, 2010
Format:DVD
If you like dramas that pack an emotional punch, don't miss this one. AMISH GRACE is a powerful story -- both tragic and inspiring. The acting, screenplay & directing are excellent and, in my opinion, as good or better than in many major film productions. The story is set in the Amish community in Lancaster County, the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country.

Kimberly Williams-Paisley & Tammy Blanchard give strong performances as bereaved women who struggle mightily to cope with their own personal tragedies. Williams-Paisley portrays the grief-stricken Amish mother of a 14-year old daughter who is gunned down by a deranged shooter in a small Amish schoolhouse. Blanchard plays the role of the wife of the killer who discovers too late her husband's heinous plot.

Although the film is based on an incident that occurred in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania a few years ago, it is not a docudrama. Rather it focuses more on the tragic and traumatic effects of the killings on one of the Amish families and on the family (mostly the wife) of the shooter. The interplay of the 2 main characters and their contrasting families illustrate one of the major themes of the film, the profound, paradoxical impact of forgiveness.

The Amish family itself is divided in its efforts to cope with the outrageous killing of one of their daughters. Williams-Paisley convincingly portrays the intense gamut of emotions, such as grief, hatred and outrage that any mother would feel. Her reactions sharply conflict with those of her husband, who anguishes (mostly in private) over his own suffering and the extraordinary effort required to genuinely forgive the killer in Christ-like fashion.

I just finished watching this on tv, and went right here to amazon to see if i could purchase it! It was very respectfully done, and it showed in such a powerful way the power of forgivness, that is truly mind blowing and of God... I would recommend this to anyone. Such beauty in the midst of tragedy.

3.0 out of 5 stars message great; presentation poor January 13, 2011
Format:DVD
The message of forgiveness is presented well, even eloquently at times, in this film. The unforgiving wife's husband, Gideon, is the most believable of all the actors and it is his words about forgiveness that make the film worth viewing.

However, living among the Amish as I do, and having been in an Amish home, I found it hard to get past the unrealistic acting and scenery. The actors, especially the fictional main character, were so American English, that I had to work to get past their presentation to grasp the real message. The house of the Amish family in this film was a far stretch from the simple, plain homes with the smell of wood burning that are true Amish. Who came up with the idea of the fancy boots on the girls in the beginning of the movie? Knowing real Amish, I cannot imagine them ever sporting such fancy things.

I am interested to read a book on this event now. I hope to find one that doesn't deal in fiction but with the Amish as I know them and admire so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amish Grace June 15, 2010
Up lifting story of struggle & pain of forgiveness. While there was struggle and pain there was an uplifting end. Dealt tactfully with the murders at Nickle Mines in PA. Respectfully and compassionately showed the tragity and the Amish.

5.0 out of 5 stars forgiveness is tough love August 4, 2010
By denisj
Format:DVD
If you have a problem with forgiving those who have hurt you bad ( hasnt everyone...) then watch this film this winter ! It is a magnificent film. It is a dramatic film of how the Amish community decided to forgive a malicious killer. It is an excellent illustration for all of us to learn something profound. The more we decide NOT to forgive those who have hurt us the more we punish ourselves, and thats serious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome message! October 4, 2010
Format:DVD
My wife and I watched this movie the week it was released. The movie is about true events which occured in an Amish community several years ago and was reported by the national media. The movie brings the people and event to life more than a news story ever did. It gives each of us a challenge from God behind the scenes to put into place in everyday living. A tragic shooting takes place at their school and the Amish forgive the murderer and assist his family. One parent struggles with the premise of forgiveness among all the Amish, her journey is shown and how God works a miracle in her life.

The movie is a great reminder to forgive others. In case the shooting scene worries you, it is not shown. It is handled dimplomatically.

5.0 out of 5 stars I WILL NOT BETRAY MY DAUGHTER BY FORGIVING HER KILLER September 18, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Based on the true story of the murder of five innocent Amish school girls in 2006 in Lancaster County Pennsylvania. The main family in the story is fictional, however. Great acting and screenplay. Emotional without being manipulative. Violent without showing any violence. Inspirational without being preachy. I have always been critical of faith-based films that are basically 'sermons disguised as films'. Faith-based films should be great stories where the message is an integral part of the story. This is one of those. At the heart of the story is a horrific crime. A lone gunman backs his pickup to a one room Amish school, walks in and proceeds to kill five young Amish girls and wound five others. What happens after that is almost as unbelievable. Three Amish men, including the father of one of the victims, visit the home of the killer to offer forgiveness and help to the gunman's widow. But not everyone finds it easy to forgive. Ida Graber (Paisley) isn't buying it. 'I will not betray my daughter by forgiving her killer'. What follows is for the most part the struggle between two women, both mothers & wives, struggling with forgiveness and their husbands from two totally different perspectives. While we may all have a tendency to see the Amish as stoic and and almost mechanical or robotic in their faith, this is not at all what comes thru in the film. While raising (but not answering) some inconsistencies in their practices, we see them as real humans struggling to deal with this horrific crime against their community. One of the most powerful scenes is at the funeral for the gunman. This is a movie that will haunt you and stick with you as you consider (at least I did) how to live out a live of forgiving with even just the most mundane grievances. What could this mean for communities, our nation and our world if forgiveness were truly practiced. I highly recommend this film. Lu G. for Lu's Reviews.
